Meshlet Primitives for Dense RGB-D SLAM in Dynamic Environments

Meshlet Primitives for Dense RGB-D SLAM in Dynamic Environments

This research develops an efficient method for fitting meshlet primitives to RGB-D data that achieves high geometric fidelity with minimal overlap, such that the spatial density of primitives is significantly reduced compared to surfels.
